Development began as a proposed replacement for the VF-1 Valkyrie, competing with the VF-X-4. Chief designer was the VF-1 Valkyrie's principal designer Colonel Chris J. Takatoku. Development proceeded with the basic design and production of a full-size mockup. The project used Earth's Grand Cannon IV as the main base. Since the VF-X-3 was developed primarily from the VF-1 Valkyrie's designs, it was clearly demonstrated to have maneuverability exceeding that of the VF-X-4. Project ended at the developmental stage because the production systems were lost in 2010 with the destruction of the Grand Cannon IV and the disappearance of Colonel Takatoku. Project data and the mockup were also lost, and only a number of photographs and one part contracted out to a space plant exists now.
